Spooky Halloween at the Discovery Center

Come to the Discovery Center at the Whaling Museum, pick a spooky lantern filled with surprises and try a new craft.

Children will make marigold flowers out of tissue paper and learn about the cultural history of the Day of the Dead.

Marigolds are the most recognizable flower associated with Dia de Muertos or Day of the Dead. The flower is placed on graves during the holiday. It is believed to lure souls back from the dead to the land of the living with its vibrant colors and powerful scents.
